Vintage Wedding in Teneriffe

This is the story of a couple that got married in the prestigious Brisbane riverside suburb of Teneriffe amongst the old and eclectic woolstores. They had a vintage art deco theme, which was intensified by the fact that got ready at the exquisite Emporium hotel. The Emporium has a classy art deco theme, predominately black with plush damask lounges and the most insane bar! While the girls were getting ready, I joined the groomsmen for a short while in the bar, and the best man proved he is a man of many talents, unveiling the piano and playing some classical tunes.

Shakira and her bridesmaids had their makeup done by Claire from A Princess Palace, and her 1920’s hairstyle and birdcage veil completed the look of the gorgeous lace gown. The bridesmaids wore red Kitten D’Amour trenchcoat style dresses. Shakira’s red lips, belt, roses and shoes tied the whole look together.

The waiting guests were serenaded by a string quartet and had access to a refreshing drink stand.

The bride and bridesmaids arrived in true style to the ceremony in a classic 1950’s Jaguar. The ceremony and reception were both held at a gorgeous Brisbane riverside restaurant Eve’s on the River. Renee Wilkins conducted a beautiful ceremony tailored for the couple, which included a rose ceremony for special people in their lives and a custom made (by Josh the groom) memory wine box, in which they included letters to read to each other.  The idea behind it is to open it on your 5 year wedding anniversary, share the wine and read the letters you wrote to each other when you got married. I wish I’d thought about that when I got married!

For our photography session I took the bridal party on a little walk through the Woolstores across the road, whose old brick walls and archways gave us plenty to work with in the fading light.

Eve’s on the River put on an amazing dining experience which included scallops, pork belly, quail and lamb racks, The black, white and red colour scheme including damask table runners and a damask cake created a classy and elegant experience for all of their guests….. that is until they hit the dancefloor – but hey it’s a wedding!! 🙂

Oh yeah! and thanks to Janah from GM DJ’s for getting the party started!
